Blue Frog, Green Lawn

Blue Frog Lawn & Bugs was started by Pete Florian who has been taking care of lawns and bugs in Sarasota and Manatee counties since 1996! Blue Frog is locally-owned and operated, and we have a passion to supply the best possible service in town!

Blue Frog is founded on the philosophy that you should do your job correctly, provide great service, and always use quality products. We are a small company and we like it that way. To us, you are not just a number- you are family!

We only hire technicians that have an extensive knowledge of the industry and take real pride in what they do. We space our jobs throughout the day, so our technicians have more flexibility and time to spend getting to know you and answering your questions! Unlike other companies, we don’t push our techs to get more done. Our focus is our customers!

We focus on being up to date with the latest news and techniques in the industry. We hold monthly training meetings to go over the newest information and are always on the cutting edge! We also attend classes sponsored by the University of Florida on average 4 times per year. Our technicians receive more continuing education than many certified pest control operators in charge of other companies!

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer a guarantee?

At Blue Frog we are more than happy to return to your property to take care of any problems that come up in between services, and continue to take care of them until they are solved! If for some reason we are directly responsible for the death of a plant due to improper application we will replace it.

Are the products you use safe for children and pets?

We use the safest possible products on your property in order to get the best results! However, we would advise that children and pets remain off of a lawn until the product has had time to dry, especially when we use liquid products. To be even more cautious, we recommend that certain applications be watered in and then allowed to dry before allowing children and pets back on the lawn. With most granular products there should be no concerns.

What if it is not my scheduled watering day, and you ask me to water in a treatment?

Not to worry, the law allows you to water for an application when the label of that product stipulates for that to be done. The Label is a federal law and that law overrides county rules and regulations. As long as you have a sign in the yard and a receipt that we applied a product that needs to be watered, you should have no issues.

Are you licensed and insured?

Absolutely! Blue Frog holds all the required licenses as well as additional certifications from the state and county offices that we feel we should have.
